nearby town to park in and take train

We will be driving from the silver coast to visit Sintra for the day. Are there any towns nearby where I could park the car and then take the train (with frequent service) into Sintra?

Sintra is 6 min. by train from Algueirão-Mem Martins‎

The website for the trains: http://www.cp.pt/

For the English language there's a little flag in the right hand upper corner.

The train station area at Algueirão-Mem Martins it's not an easy place to park your car.

If you are arriving via A8, exit to A9 (known has CREL) where you'll exit to A16 Sintra/Cascais then at exit 8 (Sintra Centro/Colares) here you'll arrive to Portela de Sintra train station area and there you'll have parking to your car. You can take the train to Sintra central station or a bus to go to Sintra centre.
